INSTRUCTION SUPPORT:- Illinois Institute of Technology's (IIT) seven colleges allow students to discover new frontiers in engineering, computing, architecture, business, law, design, and science and human sciences. The school's nationally ranked undergraduate and graduate programs offer exceptional teaching that combines hands-on learning with training in entrepreneurship, design thinking, and technology. The University's emphasis on collaboration and interdisciplinary study and research will prepare students to work across traditional boundaries and to experience a professional future where success knows no limits. Since 1995, the University's signature Interprofessional Projects Program (IPRO) joins together students from various academic disciplines to work as a team to tackle real-world problems, often on behalf of companies and nonprofits that sponsor the projects, using design-centered methodology and innovative thinking. A required academic program, IPRO teaches leadership, creativity, teamwork, design thinking, and project management to prepare students to succeed in a professional work environment. IPRO student teams have explored a range of ambitious topics. These include developing a platform for safe drug disposal, designing a functional retail building that produces as much energy as it uses over the course of a year: net-zero energy, harvesting condensate from HVAC systems to create drinking water for humans, and hundreds more. Every idea needs fuel to be successful. IIT's Idea Shop helps to ignite ideas with cutting-edge tools to enable students to transform their designs, products, and inventions into reality. In this state-of-the-art, rapid-prototyping lab, full-time staff and a diverse group of student workers advise users on equipment use, mechanical and electrical design, embedded systems programming, and much more. As a campus wide resource, students can use the Idea Shop for a class, research project, or their own personal endeavor. Under the College of Architecture is the university's award-winning Design/Build studios that allow students to design and construct full-scale buildings, fulfilling the notion of a "hands-on" education. The projects are entirely designed and built by architecture students at the Illinois Institute of Technology's College of Architecture. These projects are located all over the world. From Chicago, to Germany, to Ghana, to Indonesia, to Chile, and Puerto Rico, students have traveled near and far to perform their designs. Instruction supports over 40 academic majors, more than 70 minors, and a variety of specializations and is made up of over 6,900 students, including 3,129 undergraduate, 2,990 graduate, 838 law students, and 4 students in continuing education programs.
